The family owned bodega López Heredia, one of Rioja’s oldest and most traditional establishments, was founded in 1913 by Rafael López de Heredia, three generation later the family Lopez de Heredia continue to devote themselves to producing exceptional and unique wines. Located in the heart of the Rioja Alta region, Viña Tondonia is a beautiful vineyard and one of the most spectacular in Haro, of over 100 ha. situated in a shell like depression on the right bank of the river Ebro, the soil is alluvial clay with a high proportion of limestone. The grapes from Viña Tondonia are always used in making their highest quality wine. www.lopezdeheredia.com
Tasting Notes: Light, elegant red fruit aroma, notes of spice, mineral with hints of earthiness. Smooth, forward ripe dark fruits with a touch of vanilla, refreshing acidity, firm tannins and excellent length. A traditional Rioja of some class.
Notes: Will drink well through 2027.
